If you are on the Royal Suites side you simply go to the Butler located in the RST lobby a day or 2 before you want the cake and let them know that you need a birthday cake. It cost 20 dollars and it was delicious!! It fed at least 20 people and then some. I can't remember what the flavours were but I think you had a choice. They also put Happy Birthday with the persons name on it. 

We too wanted to go somewhere special to celebrate, so we opted to meet at the RST poolbar at around  8pm and they put patio tables in a circle to accomodate around 20-30 people. It was a beautiful night out and it ended up being a nice private party.

I am bringing my own cake topper.  I am bringing an initial monogram.  Just simple and easy to transport.  I am going to request the cake below and plan on bringing ribbon.  I like the ribbon with the flowers.

Examples:

That's the same type of cake topper we were going to use... where did you find it at and was it expensive?

 

Also, I don't know why Carolina isn't responding via email. I have sent her messages and she responds within a few days.

 

Have you tried replying with the subject: Wedding on (fill in date)

 

I usually respond with my date in the headline and use the "reply" button to a previous message she has sent me so she "knows" who I am. Hope she responds soon! I get married in a lil over a month. If I can find out anything while I am there for you, let me know! Good luck with your planning!

Yeah, I'm not a big fan of the toppers they provide based on the pics I've seen. I remember a past bride saying that you can just ask them to not use it and they won't. I'm not a huge fan of toppers in general...I'm bringing turquoise ribbon for the sides of the tiers and a big star fish I bought at Michael's for the top (which I guess is kinda like a topper)...I realize some people may not like the idea of a starfish touching their cake - I, personally, don't care and will have fun eating it anyway, lol msnwink.gif

Quick question, anyone who didn't do the legal paperwork there, what does Carolina need to do the ceremony? Is it just a copy of the papers or your actual certificate. I am trying to decide which date we should do the legal stuff on here, but I think it takes so many days to get back I want to be sure we get it on time if she needs the actual certificate.

 

AND Carolina emailed me asking for our guest list which means it is officially geting CLOSE! I better get my butt moving to get everything together! Work and grad school have been consuming my life msncry.gif

I was wondering how did past brides pay for the wedding? I don;t like the thought of bringing like $4000 cash...I was wondering if the Master Card exchange rate would be the same as if you paid for something in the US or do they up the exchange rate at the Resort?

Hello LAdies!!  Does anyone know if the resort gives you the choice of the dinner being a buffet? Or if the guests can have a choice of either fish or meat? I have looked at their menus and it seems that we have to decide what everyone is going to eat. I wouldn't mind a buffet style dinner so like that my guests can have whatever they decide.

Ha good luck with this one.  Carolina STILL hasn't sent me a menu, I just have the choices from past brides on here.  Depending on how many guests you have (I think you have a large group) I am pretty sure that a buffet is not and option.  You must have a pre-set menu which you can't decide on until you get there.  She will show you the options when you get there and tell you what restaurant which sucks if you are wanting to have formal menu cards printed to match your theme which is the dilema i am currently faced with.  Here is the bad thing...EVERYONE must eat the same thing.  I have told Carolina that I am willing to pay more for additional options but this is not available.  Everyone has to either eat meat or fish, you don't get both which I think is odd since it is an all inclusive place and you are spending the extra money.  I think they should allow for your guests to have 2 entree options, but they don't!
